Abstract:

Variation of depth within a single etching spot (3 mm circular diameter) was observed in nanoporous GaN epilayer obtained on photo-assisted electrochemical etching of n and p-type GaN. The different etching depth regions were studied using microRaman and PL(yellow region) for both n-type and p-type GaN. From Raman spectroscopy, we observed that increase in disorder is accompanied by stress relaxation, as depth of etching increases for n-type GaN epilayer. This is well corroborated with scanning electron microscopy results. Contrarily, for p-type GaN epilayer we found that for minimum etching depth, stress in epilayer increases with increase in disorder. This is understood with the fact that as grown p-type GaN is more disordered compared to n-type GaN due to heavy Mg doping and further disorder leads to lattice distortion leading to increase in stress.
